Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - September

Hello and welcome to "Unofficial-End-of-Summer-Unofficial-Start-Of-Fall!" I know that Fall does not really begin until the Autumnal Equinox on September 22, but I am more than ready to dispense with the heat!

Here is my version of the Tim Holtz tag of the month. Instead of butterflies, I decided to go with my favorite embellishment - gears. For my tag, I used the following supplies:
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous Classics#1, Classics#2, Classics#5, Mercantile CMS189, and Stampin Up background stamp "En Francais."
Dies: Sizzix Movers & Shapers Mini Gears Set and Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets
Stencil: Tim Holtz layering stencil THS010 Eye Chart
Card stock: Glossy card stock, black card stock (I made my own tag)
Ranger Archival ink in black
Many different colors of Adirondack alcohol ink

Here is a link to the tutorial I followed to make this tag:

I hope you like my tag, and if you have any comments, I would love to hear from you! Peace.


  1. Great tag Kathy! Wonderful colour arrangement on the cogs. Very creative. Karen.x

  2. I really love this tag, Kathy! GREAT job!

  3. Your tag is beautiful. I have the face stamp that you have used, and I was thinking of using it, since I don't have the one Tim used. The cogs are an excellent embellishment. A very creative, inspiring tag! Thank you for sharing, you have inspired me to create a tag too with what I have.
